Synopsis

Fathom Events and the Metropolitan Opera present a broadcast of Handel’s Agrippina, live in select cinemas nationwide on Saturday, February 29. An encore performance of Handel’s Agrippina will be shown in select cinemas nationwide on Wednesday, March 4. As the imperious title empress, mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato leads the Met premiere of Handel’s tale of deception and deceit. Harry Bicket conducts Sir David McVicar’s wry new production, which gives this Baroque black comedy a politically charged, modern updating.

My thanks to the Met for this kind of production - traditional opera redone. The cast was superb - with plenty of acting, choreography. Comedy and pathos. From beginning to end, totally entertained.

Over-the-top satirical production, but it worked (all those da capo arias could use a little help), and the singing was superb. Great fun.
